TV Towns & Your Personality (Jerome A. Holst © 2002)
lot of our recreational hours are spent watching television. So, recently a study,
sponsored by TV Acres and conducted by the prestigious firm of Dewey, Cheatum
and How, investigated the connection between TV Towns and the personality of the
viewers. The survey showed an actual correlation between the TV Towns we watch
and our own personality. The survey revealed that deep down inside we are drawn
to a particular TV town because it manifests elements of your own psychological
For your edification, we have listed the top TV towns tallied from the survey as
well as the personal profiles that we deduced from the study. Take a look and
see if the results below match your own personality.
What does choosing a TV town reveal about
yourself? Read On.
Mayberry - You are a laid back type. You enjoy a quiet life. Sunday
morning is your favorite time of the week. You like to sit on the front porch,
and gently talk about the neighborhood and its residents. You prefer a good
home-cooked meal to fast food. You are loyal and devoted to friends despite
their flaws. Church and community are high on your lists of life's duties.
Twin Peaks - You are kinky. You prefer the dark of night to the sunshine.
You enjoy eating cherry pie and drinking hot black coffee "dark as midnight."
You like to visit strange and unusual night spots. You are teased by danger and

Eerie, Illinois - You are a skeptic. You distrust the "Establishment."
You are curious about how things work and why they work. You don't believe that
Elvis is dead. But you like to tell the story about the time you and your friend
Bubba saw a UFO flying over the lake while cranking back a six-pack. You are
fearful of door-to-door salesmen.
South Park - You are a crude, lewd dude. You like to break rules and
wind. You are slow on the uptake and are not reliable. Your friends should not
put their trust in you and woe to those who do. You hate the cold and
overcompensate by wearing multiple layers of clothing. Speaking is not your
forte and so you speak fast and mumble your words to get a conversation over
with as soon as possible.
New Rochelle - You are a romantic. You have a good sense of humor. You
believe that home life isn't home life without the love of a good woman and the
smiling face of a little child. You are sometimes shortsighted and often fall
over small pieces of furniture in your path. Your ego sometimes gets in the way,
but in the end you know that your wife is always right.
Los Angeles - You are a lothario. You love to watch the babes. You prefer
a day at the beach and a night on the town. You buy cars with big engines to
compensate for your inadequate sexual prowess. You spend to much time with
hairstylists. Your people skills get you through the day but at night you feel
lonely and disconnected even in a crowd.
New York City - You like the busy hustle and bustle of every day life in
the big city. You consume massive cups of coffee with friends at local coffee
bars. You don't take crap from anyone. You're a mover and shaker but you have
your vulnerable side and need to know that someone loves you despite your big
Miami Beach - You live on the wild side. You like to wear colorful
clothing. A day at sea is preferred to life on the land. The exotic is in your
blood. You enjoy a romantic stroll on a moonlit beach. But action is in your
veins. You love to drive fast cars and solve people's problems. Let's face it,
you're cool and you want everyone to know it.
Mayfield - You are immature. You are gullible. You make lots of mistakes
and are always getting into trouble. You need a strong paternal and maternal
presence to keep your life in order. You are easily swayed by your friends and
often do things you know that you should not. You have issues with sibling
Springfield - You are an idiot. You are lucky to be alive. If not for the
love of others you would have been killed years ago. You are over indulgent,
especially with food and alcoholic beverages. You have issues with children. You
sometimes try to strangle them to resolve your problems. Relatives are low on
you list of priorities and if possible, you'd never visit them or let them visit
Stuckeyville - You are a casual dresser. Your idea of a night on the town
is to go to the local bowling alley, knock down some pins and knock back some
brews. You are a sentimentalist. You tend to keep your mind in the past and
wonder "what if" instead of looking to the future. But you have a lion's heart
and though ill advised, at times you rush head forward into trouble. Luckily,
you have talents that get you through the bad times, but through those times you
still worry about what the next moment will bring.
So, how close did the survey come to revealing the real you? Did it hit the nail
right on the head or was it way off base? Oh well, it's only a survey. What does
a statistical "norm" mean anyway?
